As much as I'm still in love with my 3DS and as much as I'd like to spend another Recaps on talking about video games, today is another day I just don't have time for that. Hopefully it's the last one! Within a little over a week, I need to finish three papers and prepare one presentation. One of those papers needs to be done by Monday, and it's being a bitch-and-a-half, so I'm going to be struggling with that one for the rest of the day and the weekend.

Finally, though, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Once these papers are done, I will be more or less completely finished. I can't begin to tell you how much I need at least a week to do absolutely nothing but play video games and watch movies, and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

I want to finish Bioshock Infinite which I've been playing through Family Sharing, I want to finish A Link Between Worlds which I'm still enjoying, I want to 100% Super Mario 3D World, there's a bunch of new games I got through the latest Humble Indie Bundle I still need to check out, I haven't touched Rogue Legacy since I got it in a Steam Sale, the list is virtually endless. It's going to be quite the week, let me tell ya. And I really really really want to reward myself for doing all that work without getting (too) distracted by video games by buying myself Pokémon X or Y. What can I say, I deserve it!
And, of course, I want to tell you guys all about it too!

After that, hopefully the next semester will not be quite as busy as this one.

* - Buddy Acker shares some of his story about his bisexuality. In addition, he speaks my mind about video games.

* - There are many reasons for why you should totally play Metal Gear Rising.

A - The DICE awards nominees have been announced recently, so VoltySquirrel wants to share his picks.

A - SamNN just doesn't know what to play! Or if he even wants to in the first place...

I - Go say hi to our new blogger, Adam McDonald!

T - Having played some of Double Fine's Broken Age, dmcscott finds a great game that is not exactly like he expected it.

T - Nimsshow did the unthinkable. He erased his Pokémon save file and started a new game.

F - SK120 takes a look at the Super Mario Bros. 3 animated show. Meanwhile, Mario thinks you're racist and you should feel bad.

F - This seems rather pointless.

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
